Izzy is the 4 year old daughter of Chad and Alisa Carroll. Izzy has Autism and is non-verbal. Heaven is Izzy therapy pony. Heaven is a very special and important part of Izzy's life. Izzy's 2 older brothers Killian and Blade were also still living at home when the tragedy in Gatlinburg struck. The family lost their home, cars, all of their precious memories and even their 3 dogs and a cat (Bella, Reetz, Bugs and Savanna). Ryan Coppock and Brian Minton were able to rescue Heaven from mountain after the flames had died down. Heaven was burned, but will recover from her injuries. Heaven was temporarily located on a farm with Ryan and his wife Ashley and now she is on a farm closer to the Carrolls in Sevier County. Being closer to the family will help the Izzy tremendously! Once they have a new home and a place for Heaven she will finally be home again.
Along with all of their belongings they lost everything they had for Heaven. Saddles, pads, blankets, brushes, halters, leads, etc. EVERYTHING is GONE! It is my goal to raise as many funds as we can and purchase new tack and gear for this little girl and her very precious therapy pony. Therapy horses are vital on the normal days and even more so during a time of tragedy!
I am already working on some unique items that will be provided by Equine Addictions (wwww.equineaddictions.com /facebook.com/equineaddictions). I will be posting pictures there for anyone that wants to see. I have also already been looking for saddle sets that are her favorite colors. The goal is to replace that first. Any amount over what is needed for tack and gear will be donated to support Heaven's future feed and vet bills to help the family in this great time of need. When I say vet bills I mean a nest egg to put aside for future bills. Anyone that owns a horse knows that when a vet visit is neccessary it can quickly become costly and while they are having to rebuild their lives they don't need to have to worry about Heaven.
To get updates on the pony you can also request to be added to Izzy's Heaven group on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/328885977479695/?ref=br_tf&qsefr=1
